The Pacific Northwest knows how to save for a rainy day.

Much like every journey begins with a single step, every savings goal starts with that first account. To help you towards whatever your savings goals may be, we start every member off with at least one savings account. If you have a goal, we have a solution to get you there.

*One (1) entry for every $25 increase in the monthly balance for the member in a Qualifying Certificate Account at month's end, with a maximum of ten (10) entries per month, per member.

How It Works:

  • Members must be 18 or older and a resident of Save to Win participating states.
  • Minimum opening deposit and minimum balance is $25.
  • Every $25 deposited counts as an entry for the monthly and quarterly drawings. This can be cumulative and doesn't need to be deposited in exact $25 increments.
  • You can deposit as many times as you'd like each month or all at once, but you can only earn 10 drawing entries per month, per member.
  • You can make a maximum of one (1) withdrawal during the 12-month period; this will have a $25 fee. Amount withdrawn will affect your entries for the month.
  • Any money you win from the prize drawings is yours and will be disbursed into your primary savings account. It may be subject to tax reporting.
  • Odds of winning depend on number of entries received. Sponsor: Northwest Community Credit Union, PO Box 10607, Eugene, OR 97440.

eBanking

eBanking allows you to do your banking whenever it's convenient for you. You can:

  • check your balances
  • pay your bills
  • transfer money
  • set up automatic phone, text, or email alerts
  • deposit checks using your mobile device

You can access eBanking through this site or download our mobile app (available for Apple or Android) to do everything from your smartphone or tablet. The mobile app has the added benefit of allowing you to deposit checks by taking a picture with your mobile device. 


eStatements

Getting your statements online is a smart move. By opting in to eStatements, you:

  • may be eligible for additional discounts on certain loans
  • keep your statements secure because they'll never get lost or stolen in the mail
  • cut down on paper used to print mailed statements


BillPay

Our eBanking offers you BillPay, which makes sure you'll never miss a bill again! You can pay bills automatically every month or log in and pay them manually. BillPay also allows you to transfer money to friends and family, even if they're not NWCU members. 


Android Pay™, Apple Pay™, and Samsung Pay®

Our mobile pays allow you to set up any NWCU debit or credit card and pay with your mobile device. It's more secure than using your card because mobile pays don't pass your card information to retailers. Learn more and get signed up today (links to help page).

This handy app allows you to manage any NWCU credit or debit card. You can:

  • turn your card on/off
  • set spending limits for certain retailers
